The resort main character is strongly influenced by its geography. Most guest rooms are specifically designed to take the advantage of the views of the natural mangrove forest and the Andaman Sea. Another key element of the design is inspired by Phuket rich history, culture, vernacular architecture and Sino-Portuguese architecture. For example, Goh kha ki, the Sino-Portuguese style colonnade, is applied and integrated into the details and design of the project architecture, whilst other elements of the Sino-Portuguese style are integrated in the design of screen patterns and the facade. The JW lobbies are another major feature and architectural concept of the resort. These are additionally expressed as a reflected sculptural cubic mass. When viewed from afar, these two main lantern lobbies, and several lantern pavilions, appear to float on a reflective pool and form a unique feature to the project. The lobby areas also feature a unique interplay of crystal-like glass facade and an internal-external Chinese pattern screen covering. The strong architectural grammar of this patterned screening becomes more apparent at night when the lobby areas are lit up to illuminate the surroundings. The simple form illustrates the congruent blending of architecture with nature and reflective water, integrated visually through the creation of an infinity pool-style water feature. This gives the architectural impression that the buildings are floating on water through the sea. Refined elegance.
